Secret Nailing Flooring Installation

MM Parquet & Carpentry Ltd would have used this style of fitting initially and it is one of the first and original ways of fitting hardwood strip flooring. This system would have been used mostly on the old dance floors, ballrooms, and basketball courts from years back. This style of fitting flooring is still widely used today and can be used in fitting solid parquet flooring also. The reason this style of fitting was done and the main reason behind it was a lot of the old plank flooring from years ago was mainly only 50-65 mm wide and would come in long random lengths and were mainly un-finished.

So, when they were removed from the packing the lengths of timber wood flooring could sometimes warp or buckle and when a straight line of flooring was installed and ready for fitting, the only way you could get a tight and neat looking fit on your flooring was to use a secret nailer gun and a large rubber mallet. This would allow you to pull everything in tight and nail at the same time.

The only downside to this way of fitting is, if you did not allow for expansion as you were laying row after row of timber, it could cause problems down the line with buckling and cupping on your flooring, we have seen this done incorrectly many times and can cause a lot of damage and cost down the line. It is also a very labour-intensive way of fitting flooring and there are easier ways to fit plank flooring and parquet flooring today.
